To each his own I guess. I liked Shiny better than Love is an Open Door, Mother Knows Best, Friends on the Other Side and, especially, Mine, Mine, Mine.
I will never accept Love Is An Open Door as a villain song, it will always be a love song for me.

The main reason why I am not a fan of Shiny is you could remove the actual song and the plot still progresses and you don't lose any of the story. Whereas the others that you mention if you remove them you do lose some of the plot.

It's the first time we get some insight into Maui being abandoned I believe, which leads to him opening up about it. He also gets his hook back and realizes he can no longer control his shape-shifting.

Technically, it WAS a love song, before they emergency-redrafted Hans into the Lying, Controlling Male Villain.

As villain songs go, it's not "Hellfire", but then, I never heard anybody give any other earthly reason for defending Hunchback. :lol:

It also have Tamatoa play into both Maui's and Moana's insecurities about their identities, which is the main theme of the film.

If there is a part that feels a bit unnecessary, it's the Kakamora sequence, but I would say that even that has a nice small set up and pay off with Maui doing all those tricks with the boat, Moana watches him and then she does the exact same tricks against Te Kā.

Early demo of "How Far I'll Go". Interesting to compare.
